    Dear Whitman Families,


    I hope you are enjoying the brief intervals of sunshine so far this spring. The garden is looking beautiful. Thank you to everyone who came to our garden party!


    The first week of May is Staff Appreciation Week at schools. I feel so grateful to have a wonderful team to work with on behalf of your children. They are dedicated, committed to your students’ success, and they demonstrate care and love in every interaction they have. Please join me in showing your appreciation this week. Take some time to stop by and say thank you.


    I also want to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers who in all ways, shapes, and forms support and help our students and teachers. It is our goal that Whitman is the center of our community, and you help make that possible!


    We are happy to announce that Whitman will have two full day Head Start classrooms starting this coming school year. We are excited about the opportunities this provides our families and students. Come to the office or check the website for more information.

    At the end of every school year, the School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their stories with you.

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
